The 2015 Nissan Rogue features make it look like an attractive crossover SUV for an Albany family, but can you do better? The crossover market has exploded with new models recently, yet the 2015 Honda CR-V looks to still be leading the pack. Can the Rogue compare to the features of Honda’s crossover? Let’s find out.
Honda Gives Drivers Features, Power, and Efficiency
In the last few years, Honda vehicles have come to set a new standard when it comes to “standard features,” and the CR-V has left many of its competing crossovers in the dust. The Rogue has managed to play catch-up pretty well, though.
Both vehicles give you access to Bluetooth phone and audio, a rearview camera, and a convenient interface to manage your tech. But Honda still has a leg up with features like integrated SMS texting, Pandora internet radio compatibility, and the environmentally friendly Eco Assist system.
Honda continues to go the extra mile with the CR-V’s powertrain, which not only offers more power and a superior fuel economy to the Rogue, it gives you a greater towing capacity as well:
- The 2015 Nissan Rogue has a 170-hp four-cylinder engine with 175 lb-ft of torque, earning an EPA-estimated 33 highway and 26 city mpg. When you need to tow, the Rogue manages up to 1,000 pounds of trailer weight.
- The 2015 Honda CR-V 2WD, on the other hand, features a 185-hp four-cylinder with 181 lb-ft of torque, earning an EPA-estimated 34 highway and 27 city mpg.* And its towing capacity lets you carry 500 pounds more than the Rogue at 1,500 pounds.
At first glance, the CR-V and Rogue look similar, but when you get down to it, Honda bests Nissan’s crossover on features and capabilities.
